KempFort: Grace Brothers In India
Braved “the ultimate shopping experience” that is KempFort, a second-class Debenhams inside a building shaped like the castle in the Disney logo. “Just browsing thanks” is not in the sales assistants’ vocabulary unfortunately. “Shirt, sir? … Track suit, sir? … Trousers, sir?”. Telling them to go away results in a backing off of no more than three feet until you move to a different section and you become the human baton in an inter-section relay between the floor staff. A walk round the ground floor involved being harangued by no less than six people desperate to sell you something.
